    Tonight the 5th grade team at my school hosted an "ice cream social" for our incoming fifth graders and their families. We have a formal open house in September, but we really wanted to have an informal get-together before school starts since it's their first year in middle school. Earlier today none of us were really enthusiastic about it because we didn't think we'd get that big of a turn out, but then we arrived and had a line at the door a half hour early! We probably had at least 60 of our 96 students, plus several parents and siblings. It was amazing! :love: The kids were soooo excited to meet us and it was nice to get a lot of the parents' questions out of the way so that we're not all bombarded on the first day of school. Overall, it was a huge success and we can't wait to do it next year!

    Nope, definitely not. :)

    The thing is, it was cold and rainy out today (barely hit 65 degrees), so all day all we kept thinking that no one would want to come out in the gross weather to eat ice cream....but they did. ;)

    That's great though about people coming out despite the weather.
